On World Oceans Day, we celebrate and honour our ocean, which connects us all. People all around our blue planet get together to start creating a better future.
Learn about the animals that live on the rocky shore in the intertidal zone in this interactive program.
The South African Environmental Observation Network (SAEON) in keeping abreast with changes in technology and pedagogy has developed an e-learning programme on the Biomes of South Africa for grade 10 Life Science aligned to the South African Curriculum Assessment and Policy Statements(CAPS).
The South African Environmental Observation Network (SAEON) presents this free Geographic Information System (GIS) eLearning material. The training material includes QGIS and Google Earth tutorials. This free online learning programme on GIS is also aligned to the Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statements (CAPS) and will be useful to Geography Educators and organisations involved in environmental science education training.
Mthuthuzeli Gulekana and Zoleka Filander from DEFF discussed the current and future prospects for ocean sustainability and human connections with our ocean. We also took a journey to the rocky shore, to collect some data and investigate the animals found there.
At SAEON we have created an iNaturalist competition for you to participate in as part of your science camp. While during these strange COVID-19 times we cannot have a normal science camp, we want you to use iNaturalist to collect data that we can use during our virtual science camps.
Lindelihle Manyathi of Ntsika Secondary (a SAEON supported learner) has been chosen to represent South Africa at a science fair in California in May 2020. He was assisted by Phakama Nodo (SAIAB) and SAEON staff in collecting data for his science expo project looking at fish.
We are very proud of the SAEON supported learners who participated in the 2019 Eskom Expo. SAEON learners were awarded a Siemens bursary, laptops from Siemens and best project in the environmental studies category and best project in agricultural sciences category.
